13 June – Gents Seniors Championship Finals
Gents Seniors – Perseverance pays off and well done to Nick Henderson who won in a closely contested match against David Bryans in very tough conditions. Nick got pipped last year.
All square after 5 holes when Nick won the 3rd, David winning the 5th then Nick went two up after winning 6 and 7. David pulled one back with a great two putt from the back of the green at 9. He then went on to win the 11th and 13th to go one up followed by a half at 14.
Nick kicked in again and won 15 to square the game. They halved 16th and Nick won 17 to take a one hole lead down 18, winning at the last.
A tough game indeed but all sounds rather exciting. Well done to both Nick and David.
Youths Championship Final
Chris Curran won the Youths Championship Final beating Jack Stewart. Hard luck, Jack but you had a hard contender to beat!
